What do you think my chances are of receiving unemployment benefits based on the following. Resources are low now so hiring an attorney would be a stretch for me.
I was a Vice President of a company and a whistleblower in 2005 - provided info to the executive level of the corporation about wrongdoing. I cooperated with legal, audit and executive level for many months providing information. The investigation was handled poorly by them with little regard or concern for my day to day situation. It was done in such a way that it was obvious that I was the whistleblower. Other managers came forward with simiar information on the department head. Subtle threats to my life were made by vendors of the department head and things turned messy.
My health suffered drastically - Deeply depressed, afraid, I was on antidepressants, visits to doctors, gained weight as a result. I had no option but to hire an attorney and negotiate leaving which I did. The Senior VP was subsequently demoted just after I left and he left the company - they forced him out.
As part of my arrangement, I left the company last fall but was paid for additional months which ended early in 2006. I have still been unable to find a job. I am in my late forties and no remaining manager at that department will give me any kind of work reference - I'm resourceful and not complaining but just stating facts.
I did quit before I had another job but only because the situation that was allowed by the corporation to continue (this had been brought to executive management's attnetion several yrs ago - nothing done) had created a terrible work environment, the investigation handled poorly, my life threatened. etc etc. etc.What is the name of your state?
